Founded in 1974, National Yang-Ming University, formerly known as National Yang-Ming College of Medicine, has been adhering to the school motto of "benevolent mind and art, putting knowledge into practice" while training excellent humane doctors to provide service by solving medical problems in remote and rural areas.
As a medical education oriented comprehensive university, we aim to provide quality teaching and cultivate advanced professionals. Instead of traditional "subject based learning (SBL)", we continuously promote "problem based learning (PBL)" to cultivate the students' motivation for self-learning and self-centered learning skills. Through the teaching of fundamental science, we plan to lay a solid foundation for the students to help them stand firm and develop progressively. In addition, we also place great emphasis on training in professional know-how, and diverse learning.
We do not only offer many opportunities for intercollegiate studies and cooperation to help balance the education provided in medical science with a humanistic touch, but also many chances for international exchange to enhance the students' international perspectives. We attempt to cultivate professionals with a wide knowledge and expansive humanistic concerns, who will help improve the quality of health care in Taiwan and promote the development of the biotechnology industry.
